Holiday entertaining is a treat, I love bustling around gathering ingredients for dinners and decorating for our guests. That feeling I get when I’m in the last minute stages is wonderful, I usually have Christmas music playing as I work in kitchen to get me into the mood. While I adore all of this, the fact is that life is busy and I just don’t always have the time or the energy to make everything from scratch. I have become quite health conscious with my foods, so when I’m looking for pre-made foods I am on the hunt for fresh choices which don’t use preservatives. One of my favourite choices for pre-made foods is Summer Fresh. Each and every time I serve Summer Fresh, my guests are instantly WOWed.
